    I worked at Boston Scientific full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Good work life balance. If you were to compare the parking lot at 5pm at BSC to other companies, you would be able to confirm that leaving early is not an issue.

    - Good corporate initiatives (diversity, recycling, compost, etc.)

    - 401k matching is good, vacation is solid.

    Cons

    - Complex quality system. It only gets worse year after year. I appreciate the benefits fully, but the implementation of new system after system just overcomplicates things.

    - Too much firefighting and too little focus on overall systematic fixes/improvements.

    - Morale is low in the Bay Area. Ever since 2/3 of the business was moved to Costa Rica, morale here has been low. Add onto the fact that competitive tech companies here have plenty of perks, it's easy to see why morale isn't there.

    - Engineers cycle in and out relatively quickly

    Advice to Management

    1. Promote from within.

    2. Management needs to be less "cliquey." There's definitely a lack of diversity in the Bay Area management team, and it's not difficult to see why that's the case given their behavior.

    3. Compete with other Bay Area companies better.
